Merlot is best for making red wine sauce for a dish like this cause it is smooth and fruity. Imagine all the goose liver tucked inside your juicy chicken breast and drenched in a mushroom red wine reduction accompanied by healthy grilled pumpkins. The taste is just heavenly!

During my recent trip to Budapest, I was introduced to the Hungarian Golden Goose Liver by my tour manager. Being a fan of Foie Gras, I naturally bought some of the finest goose liver pates. Do you know that Foie Gras is good for you, and it is known as " the French paradox " according to American researchers and Dr Serge Renaud - a specialist in the field? ( Source: Golden Goose Liver )

Apparently, Foie Gras are a recommended part of dietary intake since they help reduce the level of so-called " bad " cholesterol in the blood. So unlike the contrary hear-say, goose liver is actually good for you!

Just look at the generous stuffing of the mouth-watering goose liver! Isn't it nice to know that the Hungarian Golden Goose Liver is 100% natural and that the geese are not force fed? Bon Appetit!

  15. nom nom nom it look delicious <3

  16. Hi Shirley:)
    I was always under the impression that Foie Gras was laden with cholesterol as are most organ meats. Now you have piqued my curiosity:)

    Whatever the case, I would be most willing to give your restaurant style meal a a portion of my alloted cholesterol, looks fantabulous!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing, Shirley...

  17. wow,that looks so delicious
    i would love to try it

  18. That looks really delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  19. im not foie gras fan
    but im glad to know no animal abuse prior to be killed

  20. Nicely done!

    The dish looks fabulous. I like foie gras too, but have never tried Hungarian foie gras. I honestly don't care if they've been force fed or not (they're geese, we do worse to humans) so my primary concern would be quality. If it tastes the same, I'll go for it. :)

  21. What a lovely dish, Shirley. I am salivating over the thought of wine sauce with chicken. I will try this one day!

  22. Soooo delicious Shirley! I'm a huge lover of foie gras but I don't eat it too often but wouldn't mind having it more often! This sounds like such a good pairing, the chicken is lean, the foie gras rich and fatty and the sauce to pull everything together!


A lovely note makes a beautiful day!
